No More Free Carpools

The Bay Area Toll Authority voted to eliminate free carpools on the Bay Bridge yesterday, and decided to charge carpoolers $2.50 to cross the span beginning July 1. According to the Chron and the CoCo Times, the authority also voted to raise the bridge toll to $6 for everyone else during commute hours and to $5 on weekends. The Bay Bridge toll will remain $4 during non-commute hours on weekdays. In addition, the authority raised the toll to $5 on all other Bay Area bridges at all times, except the Golden Gate, which is not under its jurisdiction.
